in the united states that's authorized under u.s. law where the government and n.s.a. can approach companies and compel them with a court order to hand over details about specific individuals in their emails. this is a much more in discriminate approach. >> it just looks like it's just spiraling out of control, the whole spying allegation. why do you think they feel there's a need to go outside of the u.s.? >> well, it's interesting, because there are laws in the u.s. that restrict the kinds of things these intelligence agencies do, like going outside the u.s., they are not subject to u.s. law, so we don't know exactly where the documents do not specify where the points at which these -- the data's being vacuumed up are, but they're outside the united states, so the agency doesn't have to comply with u.s. law. the agency said it is doing everything in order to obtain valuable intelligence about the hostile entities, and that it is not trying to get around u.s. law. the companies themselves are very angry, google said it's outraged that needs for urgent reforms are necessary and going to beef

different set of laws. they're governed by the president through the governor, a neighboring province, and so they are excluded. in fact, in pakistan the area is referred to as the alien territory , or the foreign territory. so there is a disconnect between the area and pakistan proper, yet it is part of pakistan. i would like to go back to something that david said about it being a battle zone. i if that's the case, thi this is creating a legal issue similar to vietnam and cambodia, which was not part of the war zone, should u.s. forces be used when there should be some policing done. the problem will continue when the pakistanis are not capable nor have they shown the desire to police the area. >> faiza patel, jump int into te legality of this. >> thank you for bringing that up. i also agree with you. it's not clear to me that the area counts as a war zone. and when go into yemen it's hard to argue that we're talking about a battlefield scenario there. i think there is a disconnect between the u.s. position that it is at war with al-qaeda and it's associated forces everywhere and th
the laws that exist already are actually sufficient on corruption sufficiently? >> i think the biggest problem is there are great laws, but they really don't have the funds or staff that they need to investigate this entire large state of 35 million people. and, you know, what has happened is that particularly at the local level there's a lot of opportunity for bad behavior to go unnoticed, and we have seen in recent years, particularly actually just in recent months, opportunities for for instance water districts and local city councils to beef up their ethics investigation, and for the fcc to be more involved in investigations, and when doesn't rise to the level of the scandal that is now brewing around the calderons, the real question is who is going to enforce problems at the local level. and we don't have a robust system to do that. i think we need to invest our money where our mouth is if the legislature thinks this is a real issue. what they need to do is put money in for the fcc and improve at the local level. >> kathy has mentioned this idea in terms of reform people mobilizin
